Council schedules two Special sessions for Wednesday

The City of Prince Rupert posted two advisories to their website late Tuesday, providing notice of Two Sessions of Council to take place on Wednesday, January 28th.

The first is a Special Regular Session of Council set for 5 PM, the main purpose it would seem, to provide Final adoption to the recent Transit Fare Fee Bylaws.

Background on the planned changes to the cost of Transit use in Prince Rupert can be found from this item from the blog.

The Second Special meeting will follow the Special Regular session, though it will be Closed to the public, with the City citing Section 90 of the Community Charter for the closure, highlighted by the following notice:

(e) the acquisition, disposition or expropriation of land or improvements, if the council considers that disclosure could reasonably be expected to harm the interests of the municipality.

The closed session of Wednesday, marks the third such closed session of January.

Update: Council spent two minutes in public session to provide Final Approval to Transit Fare Increases for 2015.
